I thought I would share some gorgeous wool applique today from Charmian in Australia! Charmian had mentioned she would be attending a Wendy Williams workshop. Wendy teaches wool applique and has written the book “Wild Blooms Colorful Creatures” which I just happen to own. In fact, several of my local “woollies” are currently stitching projects from this book in our group. I was concerned when I sent her the size 12 perle cotton that she would be disappointed and find that it didn’t show up well on the wool. We ended up corresponding a bit and I recognized that she was using wool felt versus wool which I use in my wool applique. All of the circles above were stitched with size 12 perle cotton on wool felt – are they not stunning! I’m thrilled with these. Then if this was not enough, and I do have more to share in future posts 🙂 she included this
Once she received the threads she wound them on spools to avoid tangling. I thought they looked fabulous and I am thinking I just better find some wool spools!!!! Thanks so much for sharing your beautiful stitching Charmian! As I said, more eye candy in future posts.
